Travelport and Rail Europe unveil enriched ticketing solution
Travelport, a leading provider of critical transaction processing solutions and data for the global travel industry, and Rail Europe, a leading provider of European rail tickets, have today launched a technological solution enabling travel agents to print train tickets on value paper (watermarked paper), in A4 format. With the new enhanced ticketing solution, Travelport-connected travel agencies in the UK no longer require specific bespoke printers as all rail tickets and passes (other than Eurostar group tickets) can now be printed on value paper with standard laserjet desktop printers.
“We are really pleased we are able to launch the Value Paper Ticket solution to Travelport-connected agents in the UK. It allows for much faster and more efficient printing of train tickets,” said Paul Lacey, Head of Sales at Rail Europe.
Simon Ferguson, UK & Ireland Regional Managing Director at Travelport commented: “We were very keen to provide our Railmaster-connected customers with an effective, comprehensive ticketing offering and we’re delighted to be able to continue conveying innovative technological solutions that will assist our customers with driving their business forward.”
